Donald Trump tonight reacted with joy to Nicola Sturgeon quitting as Scottish First Minister. The ex-US President hit out at the SNP leader’s controversial gender reforms, which have sparked a major row in recent months.
Mr Trump also insisted Scots would be “much better off” without Ms Sturgeon in the top job.
In a statement, Mr Trump said: “Good riddance to failed woke extremist Nicola Sturgeon of Scotland!
“This crazed leftist symbolizes everything wrong with identity politics.
“Sturgeon thought it was OK to put a biological man in a women’s prison, and if that wasn’t bad enough, Sturgeon fought for a ‘Gender Recognition Reform Bill’ that would have allowed 16-year-old children to change their gender without medical advice.
“I built the greatest golf properties in the world in Scotland, but she fought me all the way, making my job much more difficult.
“The wonderful people of Scotland are much better off without Sturgeon in office!”
It comes after Ms Sturgeon announced her shock resignation in a hastily-organized press conference at Bute House in Edinburgh this morning.
